Zero Density launches real-time graphics learning portal
Zero Density has launched an online learning platform for creators of real-time broadcast graphics and virtual sets. Zero Density Academy features more than 50 in-depth video lessons, enabling broadcasters to learn future-proof skills for free.
Developed using feedback from industry and educational partners, Zero Density Academy is based on structured, self-paced micro-learning content. Anyone can log in and search for a video lesson on topics including real-time graphics operations, production controls, creative workflows, green screen, AR compositing and more. They can also follow pre-defined Reality courses that cover skills for key career tracks, including operator, generalist, content specialist, technician, virtual production specialist and broadcast designer.
“Some of these career tracks are only just starting to be established — but through our work with the world’s biggest broadcasters and virtual studio experts, we’ve seen the skyrocketing demand for these skills first-hand,” said Faraz Qayyum, head of academy at Zero Density. “Today, virtual production is changing film sets and virtual studios are revolutionising live television. Real-time graphics are the future, and we’re helping the industry’s talent be ready for it.”
In order to represent real-life scenarios, each course on Zero Density Academy has been created using Zero Density’s own in-house R&D studio. Whether it’s fine-tuning Reality Keyer or building control templates, each lesson has a real-world application that can be put to use right away.
Once learners pass all the courses on the certification path, they will receive a final assignment that will be submitted to Zero Density’s product experts. Through individual feedback, learners will have the support they need to improve on their work. Once they pass the assignment, they will receive the Zero Density certification and be listed on the website as certified professionals.
